<b>Chester Bennington - July 20</b>

Linkin Park’s lead vocalist, Chester Bennington, died at the age of 41. The LA County Coroner’s office is treating the singer's death as a possible suicide after his body was found inside of a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates.

Chester’s death comes on what would have been his good friend, Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday. Chris committed suicide in May. 

Known for his big voice, Chester was one of the founding members of Linkin Park. The music group rose to international fame in 2000 with the release of their album, <i>Hybrid Theory</i>. The band, who has sold over 70 million albums to date, is responsible for hits such as <i>Crawling</i>, <i>Numb</i> and their latest single <i>Talking to Myself</i>. Linkin Park released their latest album <i>One More Light</i> in 2017 and were set to embark on a world tour.
